This result is not a huge surprise, with all that experience on Bars and the youth on Traktor it makes sense.
Usually I would say you are right but today the only reason for the Ak Bars win was the lack of concentration by Traktor! If they had used their double minor when they were 5-3 in front, the game would have been over for sure! After the 4th Kazan goal Traktor looked so terrible and they could almost celebrate to have made it to overtime!
And if you have so many good scoring opportunities (5-6) in overtime and you use none of them, it's clear that your opponent will use that at some point.
Again the lack of efficiency by Traktor was decisive, not the will of Ak Bars.
